UCLA Athletic Director Martin Jarmond released a statement after the UC Regents’ issued a ruling on the school’s B1G move.

The Regents approved the move on Wednesday night. Jarmond shortly thereafter tweeted his response to the decision.

We’re excited to join the Big Ten Conference in 2024 and are grateful for the Board of Regents’ thoughtful engagement in this decision. We’ve always been guided by what is best for our 25 teams and more than 700 student-athletes, and the Big Ten offers exciting new competitive opportunities on a bigger national media platform for our student-athletes to compete and showcase their talent.

UCLA will likely be required to pay the University of California-Berkley between $2-$10 million as a result of moving conferences.

The prospect of joining a more popular conference like the B1G has been appealing to UCLA for some time. After the Wednesday night decision, the move is all but a certainty.
